    Giant Hogweed Infestation.

    Due to the recent horrible wet weather, this nasty plant is gaining ground rapidly!

    It can leave nasty burns when touched or broken..Giant Hogweed is a public health hazard as the toxins in the sap react
    with sunlight/UV ray causing the skin to blister and severe scarring.

    It's especially prevalent along railway embankments.

    There used to piles of this stuff along the Clanrye river which runs through our town.
    I think a few kids got a nasty doing from it when I was at school....haven't heard about it in years tbh.
